Yeah I came across a bee vs video when I was looking at things after JR's battle with the yellow jackets.....

Scary things....

I used to often see some pretty giant ground hornets a couple decades ago when I used to landscape but nothing like these.  Hopefully these aren't overly aggressive towards humans like most wasps but still, that's not good for our bees... 

Time to repurpose my old tennis rackets...

I saw a piece in the newspaper about the killer hornets (asian giant hornet) and they kill bees and people (reportedly 50 annually in Japan).   Some call them giant Japanese hornets, but that is probably considered racist.... ::)

As if the bee population was not already under stress, or we need new ways to die.

Reportedly the northwest (Wash state?) is trying to wipe them out before they spread to rest of the country, I hope they are successful.

My favorite quote: "They are known as Murder Hornets, but with a good lawyer, could be known as Manslaughter Bees."
